Bobbin

Hi everyone, it seems that lace is surrounding me this month, this past Sunday we did our lace post at Our Beautiful World and it got me thinking that I do need to initiate my daughter on the craft so I started organizing.  With the help of a few blog challenges I was able to organize more crafty stuff!
CCCB and Lessology have upcycled packaging as their theme and TSTR wants lace, flowers and pearls, how happy does that make you???? Me I am in heaven!!!
I am thinking of adding it to OBW too!
Please visit Lizzy Hill's project at Lessology you are so going to LOVE it!!! mine is more subdued.
Spotlight Artist Badge
Thanks Girls!!!! So excited! loved doing this project!
dress it up by Ros at CCCB
Romantic at TSTR
Well here are the basics, a used jam jar, so loving the hexagon vibe of this glass jar from France, and the raspberry jam was TDF delish!!!
and peeling of the label was a 2 hour process as it was so attached...I had to put it in soapy water to help me take it off.  Those are my bone bobbins :say hi, they ♪ when you use them, but they needed some dress up spangles on their bottoms.  So I did the British way of dressing them up and look how spiffy they look ♥

totally happy with the look!!!!

yup, love'em and to let you know this is done so they extra weight in the bobbin helps you in the lace making process.

I found this book that has some easy projects in it like bookmarks that I am sure my daughter will be able to complete, as of this post she's finished pricking her first 2 patterns, one is a cute bookworm!!

it is authored by 2 British gals and it is very well illustrated with step by step photos if you are interested in learning the craft.  I have had several comments on my post this Sunday so this is a good reference book.
So here's the project, a housing place for my bobbins, they need a happy home

and it was the perfect excuse to use some of those bitty pieces of lace

of course a label was in order, ad now I have another piece in keeping with my other upcycled packaging
theylook so pretty together, and they are happy you stopped by to look!

I enjoyed your lovely post with all the pretty hexagon jars that are even more beautiful after you filled them with all of your pretty items. The jars are even prettier after you added the tags. Thanks so much for sharing.
